"Smile" and "The Scarlet Letter"? "Maus" and "Night"? "American Born Chinese" and "The Joy Luck Club"? "The Sandwalk Adventures" and "Origin of the Species"? Even some of the authors and artists hadn’t counted on their work sharing shelf space with the classics! Join a panel of educators and creators as they consider how teachers of all subjects can effectively juxtapose graphic novels with canonical texts to help scaffold and front load literary concepts, scientific principles, and reading strategies. Attendees will leave this panel with real ideas to take right back to their classrooms for immediate implementation.
